TFU should be renamed from "The Force Unleashed" to "The Force Unraveled."

Or maybe "The Force Unreleased"...heh heh.

I see your "Force and Unreleased" and raise you another pun...

"The Farce Unreleased"

Picked up a Jumptrooper yesterday at a toy show here in town for a fair price.  Couldn't resist.  Just wanted to say that it's one awesome figure!  The only thing keeping it from perfection is the fact that he doesn't have a ball-jointed waist.  Anyway, here's a pic.

Congrats on scoring it early... I'd overpay some for this to have it early.  It looks great!

He looks cool FG...

For the curious about the new designs, they seem very planet-specific.  The one guy I know is pictured on a pretty inhospitable planet, so I'm much more accepting of the new designs than the repainted Stormtroopers from this series of figures.  It is sort of a shame really that there's only two new designs actually, as I think they're pretty neat.

I agree completely Jesse.  These new armor designs look fantastic.  It's the repaints of the basic Stormies that seems stupid.

Exactly my thoughts as well.  Emphasis on stupid.  ;)

Sweet Jumper - thanks for posting!  I was not impressed with the fig initially, but its growing on me.

I agree. I don't know why I like this figure and the EVA one so much more than the stormtrooper repaints.

What I like about them is that they are finally using the mouth part of the helmets for something functional. The hoses LOOK like they should fit there.

I'm very much looking forward to building a squad of these. Had I still been in my big army building days I would have bought at least 20 of them. I'm cutting back, plus I'm not giving as much credit to TFU for being canon, so I don't typically build troops up because of that. (Though I did go a little nuts on the Mace clones-hard to pass up battle packs for $10 when you get 4 clones in them...)

Maybe like me and others, stormtroopers were always seen as WHITE. So to fool with them and color them is nigh onto sacriledge. Even Sandtroopers were white (if dirty from the sand and not including the paulrons).

The Jump and EVO troopers are nearly all white as well with a smidge of grey on them. So they feel closer to OT. The painted stormies just feel like a cash grab and I think THAT is what is putting off a lot of collectors to the repaints.
